I have a lot of respect for Gabel, and I knew they would come out with something good after I heard the fanm sa marew song.
Anyways , yes, I would say this Gabel LP has been one of the most influential Kompa albums this year. Boasting an orchestral sound to young kompa fans normally tuned Drums and Bass. The multi layered beats and flows rise and fall from unique half time drum patterns and 16th note high hats.
The main song, "Gon Jan Pou Ye" has just such a solid ground of melodic guitar and keyboard, and then combined so elegantly with a very rhythmic sub bass line and awesome drum beat. Gabel does such a good job of disguising the beat, while maintaining such a clear melodic structure , weaving between the vocals , keyboard, and upper stringed instruments. The lower half is sooo enjoyable as well, combining a very smooth oscillating sub bass with the lower drum tones that just so simply back the very off beat melody.
I don't want to get into the next few songs, just to leave it to you to listen to :) All the rest of the tracks have amazing beats and melodies and are a real treat, please listen.
To sum it up, all of Gabel tunes blends together in terms of simple, forward melodies that are heavily supported by very cool drum tracks and interesting rhythms.
